Choosing the Perfect Wedding Favors


Weddings can be very expensive to put together. People sometimes spend thousands of dollars to plan and put on the wedding and reception. It seems as the planning goes on there are more and more necessities of wedding tradition that add hundreds of dollars to the wedding budget. One of those traditions is the giving of wedding favors as a way of thanking your guests for their participation in your special day. It is challenging, however, to find the right favor for your wedding and your guests.

When it comes to planning and purchasing the wedding favors and gifts for the guests and the bridal party there is a temptation to skimp on these items. But the wedding couple needs to remember that these are the items which they are using to express their appreciation to all their friends and relatives who have shared the day with them.

Choosing quality wedding favors & gifts is an important part of the wedding planning and the budget should allow for enough money to make these be nice items to give. This doesn’t mean that the wedding favors & gifts have to cost a lot of money but means that careful consideration should be given to make sure that even if the gifts are inexpensive they are quality items.

If you are on a tight budget, a homemade favor such as cookies, candy, soap, or candles are appropriate, or purchase something small or meaningful for less than $2 each. Making favors may take more time, especially in the last days before the wedding, but it can help your budget. You may want to enlist the help of friends, family and bridesmaids if you choose this route. Do not skimp on favors, but don't feel bad about creating something beautiful for your guests on a low budget.

An easy '$2' option is a small picture frame with the couple's photo or an insert with the date and couple's names. You can even pick up photo magnets that guests can place on their refrigerator to remind them of the couple on a daily basis.

If you plan to give favors such as candles, potpourri or soap that have fragrance, you won't want to place them at the table to mingle with the food and create an unpleasant aroma. Set up a table by the entrance of the reception hall where guests can pick up their favors when leaving.

Another option is to offer favors that go along with the meal. Give a box of fudge or chocolate-covered cherries. Almonds or fancy nuts can be placed in a decorative box for a special touch. You can try chocolate candy bars in different shapes, a heart, rose, or have the label say something unique about your wedding. If you prefer something a little more romantic, you can always wrap the candy in plastic to keep it protected and then wrap it in a piece of toile with coordinating ribbon.

The key is to show your guests that you put time and effort into choosing or making favors. You want the guests to feel special and impressed with your choices and work. They should feel as though they were a part of the planning process, not an after thought
